ANIMAL & CELL MODELS
  • Dyrk1A Mutant Drosophila minibrain flies have a reduction in both optic lobes and central brain, showing learning deficits and hypoactivity
  • mice overexpressing the full-length cDNA of Dyrk1A exhibit delayed cranio-caudal maturation with functional consequences in neuromotor development, altered motor skill acquisition and hyperactivity, a significant impairment in spatial learning and cognitive flexibility, hippocampal and prefrontal cortex dysfunction
  • Dyrk1A(-/-) mice have a general growth delay and die during midgestation and Dyrk1A(+/-) mice show decreased neonatal viability and a significant body size reduction from birth to adulthood
  • Dyrk1a overexpression in primary mouse cortical neurons induced severe reduction of the dendritic growth and dendritic complexity
  • increased expression of phospho-Thr(192)-RCAN1 was observed in the brains of transgenic mice overexpressing the Dyrk1A protein
